Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)
The biggest question surrounding Arsenal FC right now is what is going through Alexis Sanchez’s mind? There is no doubt that he is a high-profile, high-intensity player who wants to score goals and win trophies. After a prolonged time of not putting pen to paper for a long-term contract, many clubs are wondering if the man leading Arsenal’s line will move on from the club.

Arsenal’s best player this season (whereas earlier, I mentioned Koscielny as the most consistent) leads the league with 17 goals scored and has managed to also set-up his teammates eight different times for a total of 63 chances created. The only negative about this player is the way his body language can appear to teammates.
Ripping your gloves off and throwing your boots around the pitch is absolutely no way to act when you are the star of the Arsenal show. It sends bad vibes through the dressing room and to potential suitors, it could be off putting. Nonetheless, if Sanchez decides his time is up at Arsenal, there will be a swarm of managers looking to bring him into their squad.
Perhaps Arsene’s best bit of work over the past few seasons was to ensure that Sanchez found his way into the Premier League.
